Those are really nice. Never thought of having them towing their boats. A great touch.

You should not be allowed to post here. You are giving us 'Brush Envy'! <grin>
I've read about them towing the boats behind, putting goods that they don't want destroyed, including cattle. It must have been rough trying to find lost boats after a battle.
Also, Nelson at Trafalgar did not want to tow boats, as the wind was very light and a towed boat could knock off a knot or two of speed.
Very nice. You also inspired me to do up a number of Spanish Armada period ships.

Exactly. Acording his tactic about break the allied lines, he needed all the speed as possible and towed boats was not viable.

Thank you for yours coments.

Beautiful as always, Julian. Some real heavy hitters there too, but that's appropriate for a Spanish fleet.
